Health Care

This piece was originally posted at The North Carolina Conservative.com We hear a lot from some legislators working hard to bring us peace in the world, jobs back to the U.S, higher wages for everyone, an end to terrorism and the health care we deserve. Of course, you know that health care is defined as somebody else paying for it and "free" health care is bound to cost more than anyone can afford.

Competition is the Way

"When businesses compete, you win," is true for consumers in every industry in America. From cell phones to computers, quality is improving and costs are shrinking as companies fight to offer the public the best product at the best price. But this philosophy is sadly missing from our health-care insurance system. Health care comprises nearly 20 percent of our national economy, but outdated bureaucracy and red tape have stifled competition and raised costs. As a result, today more than 45 million are without any health coverage.

Burdens of regulatory fat

After Hurricane Katrina, very few members of Congress have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving America deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members have dared suggest this spending be offset by reducing ever so slightly some of the taxpayer billions spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.

The Vermont Report 10/21/05

FreedomFest a Success FreedomFest 2005 was an energy filled event attended by 150 center right activists. Gov. Douglas, Lt Gov Dubie, US Senate candidates Rich Tarrant and Sen. Mark Shepard all made appearances. The day’s keynote speaker, Steven Moore of the Wall Street Journal editorial page, was outstanding. He has since written two articles about his experiences in Vermont, including an interview with Governor Douglas and “Ice Cream Hangover,” a hysterical and insightful account of his tour of the Ben & Jerry’s factory in Waterbury.

Uncle Sam and the Bed Pan Question

This piece was originally published on Townhall.com on October 18, 2005. Health care costs continue to skyrocket nationwide, driving up government spending at double digit rates and hurting American economic competitiveness. But, instead of addressing this crisis head on by passing medical malpractice tort reform and pro-competition policies like medical savings accounts, the federal health care bureaucracy is getting ready to add new mandates and regulations that will further drive up the cost of providing health care.

But, instead of addressing this crisis head on by passing medical malpractice tort reform and pro-competition policies like medical savings accounts, the federal health care bureaucracy is getting ready to add new mandates and regulations that will further drive up the cost of providing health care. The latest onerous regulation is Hospital CAHPS (HCAPHS), which will pile unnecessary new burdens on our nation's hospitals with no discernable benefit. HCAHPS is a survey on hospital care dreamed up by Medicare and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Bureaucrats at these two departments have decided that all hospitals participating in Medicare—virtually every one in the nation—should "voluntarily" post patient responses to a new quality survey on the Medicare website. It is an exercise in regulatory overkill that expert after expert has indicated will actually hinder its supposed goal.
